Plus the main character as a long term unemployed bloke who goes and periodically lies down in the snow in the wonderful Icelandic landscape is one I can relate to and puts its finger on alot of what it means to be listlessly drifting with no direction. Also the absurdity of the situation with him his mother and her lover is highly charming and blackly comic. Need to watch it again because it left a very favourable impact.
(de) wrote: It was a little bit better than Stereo but it was also really similar to it. I found more to like in this one, for one the simple fact that there is more audio is a plus. There is a bit of a storyline here which helps things as well, while Stereo had less of one. It's an all together interesting piece of work and I'll always look at Stereo and Crimes of the Future as a couplet of films that taught David Cronenberg about film making.

The moral dilemma for a wealthy and somewhat cold-hearted businessman when his chauffeur's son is mistaken for his own and kidnapped and held for a ruinous ransom is one of the more compelling ideas in a Kurosawa film. Interestingly, only the first hour deals with Mifune's businessman and the ransom. The rest is a police procedural as they hunt for the kidnapper. Mifune is unusually subdued here, particularly when coming to terms with the consequences of his choice. It fits well on him. Somehow you can see the fire restrained without ever feeling like it's lessened. His character is so good in fact that the film suffers when he is absent. A few more looks at how he deals with his situation would have helped immensely. Essentially the character study is good, the detective drama is good, but the combination is missing something. Anyway, a good film and one of Kurosawa's best. The flaws are minor ones and hardly ruin the film.

(jp) wrote: Everybody, from film fanatics to casual moviegoers, seems to love this movie. I've not heard anyone say one bad word about anything in this semi-masterpiece. Don't come to this film looking for any type of a laugh: Williams performance is completely bereft of comedy, as it should be. The film is written and shot beautifully: like one of the perfect pictures Sy has devoted his life to developing. Sy has been compared to Travis Bickle, a lonely man whose attempts to be "a person, like other people" fail miserably and result in him taking drastic action to right what he sees as a societal wrong. The tearful monologue at the end of the film is the single finest piece of acting Williams ever performed. It makes me really miss him. And movies like this. When watching this, prepare to be disturbed, because, as this film shows, you never know who might be watching YOU.
